Crazy Cat Lady Cult

Postby Lausten » Fri Jul 15, 2016 1:54 pm

Aww, look at the cute kitties, no wait, it's a cult.
I heard about this on Life After God podcast #41. Ryan Bell is interviewing people about their deconversion stories. This one is a young woman who got into this cult, which started Christian-like, but took off in many directions, eventually this sort of pagan animal loving thing. She is only a few years out of it, so you get a really interesting feel of how she still has fears and is still working out who she is, but she is very articulate and has found some good friends who are supporting her.

It really puts a lie to "there is nothing you can say to fundamentalist/strong believer/cult member to change their mind". It may be true that you can't change their mind with one sentence or in one day, but you can plant seeds, you can provide alternatives.

Science Fundamentalism...is exactly what happens when there’s a significant, perceived ideological threat to one’s traditions and identity.

Read the Facebook page. It looks like a cat shelter, and it is, but it's run by a woman who called herself God and started a cult in Washington. When she started to get exposed, she moved everything to Tennessee. The ones who have left (escaped), are starting to expose her again, but it's hard to prosecute someone who gets you to give your time and money willingly.

The public face of the shelter looks nice because the people behind it are keeping cats in their house and putting tremendous volunteer hours because they believe it is their ticket to heaven.

Just because you bought into a bunch of horseshit doesn't mean it exists. But you won't get over it.

I have nothing to get over but
obviously you do. ;-)
